I was the 2017-18 Graduate Curatorial Intern in the department of antiquities at the J. Paul Getty Museum, and am currently a Visiting Academic at the Institute of Classical Studies in London. In September 2019 I will be taking up a J. Clawson Mills Scholarship in the department of Greek and Roman Art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York with a project exploring the depiction of gemstones in Roman wall-painting.
